According to the former U.S. president, the Duchess destroyed Prince Harry’s relationship with his family.
Former U.S. President Donald Trump said that the wife of British Prince Harry, American Meghan Markle, acted disrespectfully towards the royal family, revealing a number of details about the rules that prevailed at Buckingham Palace.
“I’m not a fan of her. I’ve never been, from the very first day. I think Harry is being used terribly, one day he will regret it,” the 45th head of the White House said in an interview with former Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage on GB News. According to Trump, Meghan Markle contributed to the “destruction of Prince Harry’s relationship with his family, which hurts” Queen Elizabeth II. “I think she behaves very disrespectfully towards the royal family and, more importantly, the queen herself,” the ex-president said. His interview will be broadcast on British television on December 1, but local media began publishing excerpts from it on Tuesday evening
At the same time, Trump described Elizabeth II herself as “a great woman and a historical person.” The former American president met with the British monarch twice (in 2018 and 2019) as part of his state visits to London.
During the conversation with Farage, Trump also spoke about his relationship with British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who, despite his claims of friendship with the 45th American president, was one of the first in the world to congratulate Joe Biden on winning the presidential election in 2020 at a time when the voting results had not yet been finalized.
“I like him. I’ve always gotten along with him. He has moved a little towards liberalism. If we talk about his position on energy, I am surprised that he allowed this to happen, because you have one of the most beautiful countries in the world, and you are destroying it with these wind turbines,” Trump said, commenting on Johnson’s initiatives on a bet on wind energy as part of the green transition. – Boris is wrong if he is going to seriously engage in wind turbines. He’s making a big mistake.”
In October, the UK government published a state strategy for achieving carbon neutrality by 2050. This program involves an accelerated transition to green energy through the construction of new nuclear power plants and offshore wind farms. The authorities promise that by 2035 the mill will use exclusively clean energy.
